Wooden Heart Box

Just in time for Valentines I have made this wooden heart shaped box. It uses the living hinge flexi sheets to create fancy curved sides and the rest is all lids and bottoms. This technique could be used for a wide range of shaped boxes, I'd love to try some other shapes if anyone has a desire. I even wrote an instructable about it, feel free to upvote me in the various competitions over there. (svg here)

Chain Guide

Another piece of anodised aluminium from Rideworks, this time the circles were cut rather than engraved, it's just as effective but it is significantly faster to cut.

Anodised Chain Ring

I've been doing a bit of cutting for Rideworks Mountain Bikes Components while he's waiting for his new laser cutter to arrive. It's hard anodises 7075 Aluminium where the laser engraves away the black parts to leave silver markings on the part.

Cake Topper

It's a cake topper for a thirtieth birthday cake. Cut from 3mm yellow acrylic, it was made gold and sparkly using glitter and glue to make it stick.

Wargaming Tokens

Evidently there are a million different things that could be laser cut for any given war game and that's not even including the scenery. These are cut in 3mm acid green acrylic and do look better on a darker background than the usual wood surface. You could start a business selling these things if you were so inclined and we happen to know some people who sell quality laser cutters.

Rune Tags 380

Citizens of the Empire rejoice, you shall have rune tags again this year, and correctly date too. This is the fourth year in a row I've cut a batch of these, the year changes but otherwise it's remarkably similar. I had intended to do them in Obeche instead of Spruce this year but I didn't have enough. True story!

Tape Deck?

Not the 80s kind either. I had a massive pile of masking tapes and sticky tapes mostly just getting in the way and cluttering up benches. Two of these stuck to the wall gives me lots of places to store rolls and allows me to take whichever kind I need without disturbing the other (svg here)

Majestic Oak Resource Box

I'm getting a bit out of sync but the resource box for Majestic Oak is now finished. I put a chunky rounded lid on the top of the box because it's a bit more impressive than the flat lid it had before. The logo was engraved on the underside of the lid so that it can be seen when the box is opened. This box is going to be on display at the 'What's Your Game' LARP kit faire this coming weekend. Now I can get on with making my box (with a lock on it)

Lock and Key

This new storage box wouldn't be very good without a way of securing my treasures inside it. I made this lock and key prototype to sit in the front wall of the box. A simple 3 pronged key makes it a bit more interesting to turn. A hook drops down and clips into a latch on the lower half. Definitely file this one under 'should have taken more internal photos' I'll remember to add them when I make the real box up. (svg here)

Vale Box Hinge

The upgraded vale box needed some hinges for the lid so I revamped these laser cut hinges to be the appropriate shape for the new lid. The lid will still be limited as to how far it opens which is far enough to stay up on it's own but not so far that the lid snaps off backwards.
